  • Great Stuff indeed - thanks for posting. I would agree with other posters that the price on the page for the CX 70-300 can make you swallow hard but compared to other system offerings it does offer ...
  • I think, if you read it carefully, that it means the relationship between the D500 and D5 is the same as the D300 and D3 had. It doesn't mean the new cameras have the same systems as the old...

  • Thanks for the great tip - I have to admit that I've never really explored manual focus with any lens over the years - in whatever format! Just occasionally when forced into it. Nor have I done a ...
  • Oh well, looks like a difference in 'philosophy' for want of a better word - maybe I'm an 'old f' like the original poster - I notice that he has quite a few 'likes' on his post although there are ...
  • I understand what you're saying - But I didn't forget what the 32mm would translate to on larger sized sensors and,yes, I agree that its equivalent focal length could then do with some VR. However, ...
  • No need to apologise for being an 'old f' - I was thinking the same thing about why would you need VR on a lens of that focal length? Of course, each to their own etc etc and I'm not saying that ...
  • Created photo thread A few from Calke Abbey, UK.
    Just a few from a winter walk around grounds of Calke Abbey near Derby, UK. V3 +6.7-13 or 70-300. It's not a religious building as such, but an old stately home which has been preserved in its ...
  • A bit like your posts then?
  • I don't have the CPA, but I have a Ricoh GR and the two were closely compared at launch as you know due to being so similar with nothing between them - except price at the time! All I can say is ...
  • I tend to agree with you - I am basically a fan of the system, with a significant £££ investment, but the decisions of Nikon's inbred marketing dept have still been a source of frustration for me, ...
  • Don't care providing it has a V4 attached to it. Actually, scratch that as I want a V4 body only.
  • Well, in much the same way that when Mizuno stopped making my golf clubs, Peugeot stopped making my car, Apple stopped making the iPhone 4, Panasonic stopped making my TV I sort of carried on ...
  • No offence taken! Just default settings in-camera, haven't changed anything yet. I never take much notice of DPR uploads as they never do justice to images IMO. I've seen images posted in DPR that ...
  • I thought I'd add to the growing portfolio of bird images taken with P7800! Recently acquired one and whilst it certainly wouldn't be my choice for birding (V3 + 70-300 CX), I was quite pleased ...
  • First of all, I hope you enjoy your S.Africa trip - a fabulous country for 'birders' and wildlife in general. On a recent trip back in Feb (I.e their summer - no problem with light!) I took a V3 ...
  • I've arrived late to the party with the P7800 after resisting GAS, as my P7100 was basically up to the job of a single walk around camera. However, the price is down to £250 or so here in UK so I ...
  • Thanks to both of you for your comments - I've pushed the button as the price dropped even more so I think it's worth it! Cheers Steve
  • Hello everyone Been sometime since I've posted in this forum - my 7100 hasn't had much use in recent times through no fault of its own, I've tended to use my N1 stuff much more. However (and I ...
  • Thanks for the link - I didn't know about this review from Mr Stirr. Very interesting - I have often thought about this lens as I am heavily invested in the N1 system. I think it unlikely that I'll ...
  • Maybe pros don't like being given a simple heads up for some reason? Maybe it's an insult in some way?
    Maybe Nikon should have said that there categorically won't be a D5 - cue jaws in uproar and...
